In the film “Utharavu Maharaja” Udhaya concentrate on the acting and in the production area and he is the one man show for the first half and a lot of mental state characterized by a lack of clear and orderly thought and behaviour overcomes. In the second half, the viewers might believed on the senior actor Prabhu would have compromised the screenplay. Unfortunately, after his appearance the baseline elongates innumerous path that shows the boredom. A recognized person Prabhu who commands the wily man Ravi by his voice and with exposure of Raja Raja Cholan and Sentamizh controlling by a voice, even the title made a curious about the flick that content might be distinct, the expectations pulls down, once the movie started to roll out, which made to disturb, especially by irritations of the soundtrack.
The guy Ravi, born in a poor family that he observes money plays a vital role in any situation. But this awareness is given at the end of the film. The young boy who always behaved in a peculiar way that the doctor’s diagnosis him w ith a disease called DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder), that he affected by multi characters overlap in Ravi.Now, the situation made critical for Ravi that his lover was complaint toward a police station that he was vanished about one month. Again, one more twist Vasu and Ravi are both characters are the same, which is sus pected by the cop.
The investigation moves towards Kodaikanal in the second half, Prabhu who is a doctor and even specialize in net working, leads the film in different path and finally audience come to know that Ravi is a fake guy that he doesn’t hold by any disease and he is doing only for the sake of earning money in an illegal way and to secure himself that he had used up with disabilities drama was concluded at the climax. sound pollution
Tamil cinema has always had a fondness for fancy-sounding psychological disorders. Starting from the all-time favourite retrograde amnesia (Moondram Pirai) to bipolar disorder (3), our filmmakers have hardly left any disorder untouched. Utharavu Maharaja is the newest entry to this ever-growing list, and its lead Ravi (Udhaya) is a Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) patient having multiple personalities named Vasu and Mark Antony. There’s more — a major portion of the film revolves around the efforts of an obsessive-compulsive-disorder person to push the DID patient into a dangerous schizophrenic state.
While this storyline sounds intriguing and ought to make for an edge-of-the-seat psychological thriller, Utharavu Maharaja turns out to be a huge disappointment thanks to the hyperbolic performances, unrealistic staging and poorly-written dialogues. For instance, Sadhana Subramaniam (Priyanka) an astronaut, who is about to go on a Martian mission is portrayed as a deadly combo of all the loosu ponnus of Tamil cinema. When a reporter ques tions her about the secret of her success, she brightly says, “All I did was thinking thinking, pointing pointing and striking striking,” with matching actions. She even hopes to find her dead father in Mars, all because her mother once tells her, “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.”
For any psychological thriller to be successful, the filmmaker should place the audience in the shoes of either the victim or the observers, but instead, most of the first half features Ravi running around the city, giving us flash ba cks of The Road Runner Show. Though the high-quality VFX and the bold voice of Prabhu as Ukkiramkondan Iran dam Raja Raja Chozhan kindle a little bit of interest, the mood of the film is completely ruined by the uneven scr eenplay. The film finally picks up some momentum after Prabhu’s entry as Doctor Arun Bose in the second half. He elevates the weakly-written scenes with his subtle emotions and screen presence. Getting to see him perfor m stunt sequences and stylish slo-mo walks in a comparatively young role is indeed a delight.
Though Sriman, who plays a cop, keeps asking Ravi, “Who are you man?” like Padayappa Neelambari, I’m pretty sure most of the audience know who he is, even before the end of the first half. And when the final reveal hap pens, we are left with no choice but to echo MS Bhaskar’s dialogue in the film, “Yemaam padam parthu irupen, id hu kudava theriyama irupanga?” Just when we think the film is over, Udhaya stares at the camera and begins a never-ending monologue, followed by a song that goes “Enna vena enna vena enna vena pannu da.” Maybe the director Asif Kuraishi mistook this as motivation and came up with Utharavu Mahraja’s script.
